Of course unvaccinated people should be barred from receiving transplant organs

David Weill is principal of the Weill Consulting Group and author of “Exhale: Hope, Healing and a Life in Transplant.”. A Colorado health system recently sparked outrage by deciding that potential transplant recipients would not be considered for a transplant if they had not received the coronavirus vaccine. The issue arose when a woman had her spot on a kidney transplant list “inactivated,” with the threat of removal from the list entirely, if she didn’t pursue vaccination within 30 days.

STOP Program: Frontline defense against polio and other vaccine-preventable diseases

The GPEI STOP Program’s public health workforce has been engaged in the global fight to eradicate polio for over 20 years. STOP team members are also on the frontlines supporting national responses to other vaccine-preventable and emerging infectious diseases like measles, yellow fever, hepatitis B, cholera, Ebola and now COVID-19. CDC’s investments in training and deploying public health professionals, where and when they are needed most, help countries build stronger immunization systems to increase vaccine coverage and improve outbreak detection and response time.

The S100A10"“AnxA2 complex is associated with the exocytosis of hepatitis B virus in intrauterine infection

Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) is the major cause of chronic infection of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in patients. However, whether and how HBV crosses the placenta to cause infection in utero remains unclear. In this study, we investigate the mechanism as to how the HBV virions pass through layers of the trophoblast. Our data demonstrate the exocytosis of virions from the trophoblast after exposure to HBV where the endocytosed HBV virions co-localized with an S100A10/AnxA2 complex and LC3, an autophagosome membrane marker. Knockdown of either AnxA2 or S100A10 in trophoblast cells led to a reduction of the amount of exo-virus in Transwell assay. Immunohistochemistry also showed a high expression of AnxA2 and S100A10 in the placental tissue samples of HBV-infected mothers with congenital HBV-positive infants (HBV+/+). We conclude that in HBV intrauterine infection and mother-to-child transmission, a proportion of HBV hijacks autophagic protein secretion pathway and translocate across the trophoblast via S100A10/AnxA2 complex and multivesicular body (MVB)-mediated exocytosis. Our study provides a potential target for the interference of the mechanisms of HBV intrauterine infection and mother-to-child transmission.
